I brought along 2 of my hippest wing-women and we had truck loads of irresponsible fun. He definitely lived up to his Fon Match profile as far as looks, but the connection just wasn’t there.
At the end of the night, Bachelor #1 invited me out on a 2nd date, but I declined since he had been MIA most of the night. This is San Francisco, for Pete’s sake, there should be enough single men to go around.
Not too exciting, but not too shabby for my first “date” since trying online dating. I’ve survived my first half-week of online dating (that deserves a celebration, right? Secondly, Fon Match allows you to either ‘wink’ or send a message to potential dates.
What kind of shenanigans did you get into this weekend? I uploaded a couple decent pictures of myself, and voila!
Within a couple hours I had 5 or 6 winks and a few messages.
Bachelor #2: 31, 5’11, short brown hair, accountant (well, this is San Francisco). I genuinely think that the guy shouldn’t have to pay for every single meal. I didn’t know the other girl, but our dates were friends. I don’t want to know where you grew up, how long you lived in this city, how many siblings you have, what your favorite color is. But, why continue to put up with guys (or gals) that won’t go the extra mile for us? It is cute, and you should play the game right back. A date who listens, and provides intelligent feedback, is genuinely interested in what you’re saying -or is at least trying to be. After your initial animal attraction to each other wears off (after a long, long time :)) you WILL need things to talk about, so why not start practicing right from the start. ) and some juicy deets from the not-so-private lives of me and my other single friends. I work at a local start up company in San Francisco as the social media manager, which is a challenge most days because let’s face it, everyone in San Francisco thinks they invented social media and it gets pretty competitive.
This guy and I have no plans to meet in person yet, but the conversation within the Fon Match chat platform is decent. It’s sweet when he does, but it definitely shouldn’t be expected all the time. When the bill came at the end of our meal, my date rushed to pick up our half of the check. On the other side of the table, the other guy looked at his date and said, “Soooo, how do you want to do this? These are things you learn as you get to know each other in person. After considering every, and I mean EVERY, dating site out there, I’ve decided to give Fon Match a try. I’ll be using it to meet people, not develop full-on relationships…that’s for offline life. Here’s 5 sure-fire ways to tell he’s head-over-heels in with you: 1. This may seem like a no-brainer, but you’d be surprised how many single girl friends I have that think a guy who waits 3 or 4 days in between calls is actually into them. No one needs to act like a new flame is the center of the universe. If the guy calls you only for dinner and drinks after multiple dates, he’s looking for one thing. If he doesn’t listen now, he won’t start listening later. Based on the fact that I’m stuck in an office all day, and out promoting our brand most nights, it leaves me with little time to find attractive male counterparts, and even less time to find my soul-mate.
He seems pretty funny, and he plays saxophone, which can either be tragically endearing or actually really great. In the meantime, tell me about your awful, average, or awesome online dating experiences. ” A little embarrassed, the girl immediately grabbed her purse and offered to split their bill. Unless he’s a very shy and inexperienced (no thanks), a guy who is into you won’t want to give another guy a chance to woo you. Maybe not everyday at first, but he’ll call enough to make it clear he’s interested. However, waiting days to call you back or not calling you back at all means you’re not at the top of his hit list for casual convo, so he’s shouldn’t be at the top of yours. Lunch dates, friend’s gatherings, work events, and out-of-the-box dates (think: a trip to the planetarium, a picnic in Golden Gate Park) means he’s not looking to get laid. My plan is to attack the world of online dating using a brand new mobile site called Fon Match.
After we said our goodbyes and left the restaurant, I turned to my date and thanked him for dinner. Extra points if he calls on his lunch break or texts while he’s out with his friends. I don’t want to fill out applications or even a detailed profile, and there’s no way I’m paying for it either.
Turns out, San Francisco is smaller than you’d think.
